greater than God


there is only one thing the universe greater than


..and it is I
...God only exists
because I choose him to

That doesn't make sense. You only exist because G-d chooses for you to. And there is nothing in the world greater than G-d.

There's a unique way of looking at the world that one finds when learning the teachings of the Kotzker Rebbe and others..
The Kotzker would say..Chabad views the world from the top down...while I view it from the bottom up. ground zero.
It's a very existential approach in that it really creates the world around the subjects subjective perspective.
The Kotzker once famously said..Where can God be found? Wherever you let him in...
That basically sums it up.
God created the world in a way...that his presence in this world hinges on people perceiving him..
Rosh Hashana is when Adam was created because..that's when God started to exist in Consciousness.
The Telzer Rov writes that..every single person has his/her own God. If one is not in tuned with his pereception of God and is busy with his neighbors perception of God..then it's like Avoda Zara (idol worship).
So the world is a world of Tohu V'Vohu..absurdity and emptiness..Vayehi Ohr..was not a one time event...we have to create the light every minute through our free choice...

So subjectively..there is no God until we create him with our free choice.
Hashem says to a Baal and I..cannot dwell in the same world.
Yet we see..the world is full of haughty people..?
We need to shift to the subjective..
The Baal Gaavah excludes God from HIS world...

So yes...through my free will..I can choose to make God disappear..truly..
I can also choose to believe in him.

One doesn't need to get bogged down in proof of God etc..only in a top down world.
But in a bottom up world...the only thing that matters is MY choice..and my absurd as it might look.

ok, so did you read the Belgian comic book "Hersenspinsels"??? It's a story about an imaginary friend who exists only so longs as the main character believe in his existence...

Hersenspinsels is at the top of my reading list..right under Curling for Dummies..

I guess it's kind of like that. We don't have to believe in God...
It's my choice to..and it makes it that much more special...
